Snakebite Flats and a Biking Column

This is a new monthly, comic-style column covering bike riding, maintenance, and safety. The focus will be on basic bike ideas, for example today's topic is the vexing snakebite flat tire. Chicago may not have any hills, but it's got a few potholes that are basically manholes.
